Helpful Household Tips: Different Uses for Tea Bags

Tea tastes great, but did you know that it can be used outside the body as well!  Tea has a multitude of personal uses including:

  • Soothe Sunburn- If your skin has been burned badly then wet a few tea bags and place them on the affected area.  The tea will help to relive the sting. 
  • Subdue Razor Burn- Razor burn is no fun at all.  Apply a moist tea bag to the burned area and feel the awesome relief!
  • Reduce Foot Odor- Bathe your feet in a tea bath for about 20 minutes every day to reduce any foot odor you may have.  The stronger the bath, the better the results.
  • Homemade Mouthwash- If you have a toothache or other mouth pain then try rinsing with peppermint tea mixed with a pinch of salt. 
  • Dry Poison Ivy Rash- As summer approaches so will poison ivy season.  Dip a cotton ball or other towel in tea and apply to the rash.  Let the moisture dry on its own.  Repeat the process as needed.
